Holo Day - May 19, 2012

I'm part of a group on Facebook where we decided that, as bloggers and as nail polish lovers, we'd have a day where we all wear Holographic nail polish! I live in England, so it's not often that I actually have a sunny day to get a good picture of the beautifulness (not a word, but it works here) of holographic nail polish. A while ago I saw a blog where the lady put Hits Ares over a black cream polish. I got Hits Ares not too long after that, mostly because of that post. When I got it, I wondered what all the other Hits that I have would look like over black! Here's what I got:

*click to enlarge and see beautifulness better!*
Hits Zeus on thumb.
Top to bottom: Hits Ares, Dionisio, Hera and Demeter.
All over Deborah Lippmann Edge of Glory base color.
Avon Peeling and Brittleness Solver as base coat.
Essie Good to Go as top coat.

I think that Zeus, Dionisio and Hera look the best over black (although Dionisio isn't all that much different to what it normally looks like). Ares might have been better if I had used a polish thinner and thinned it out a bit. Demeter does NOT look good over the black. I won't be trying that again. I think this is a nice way to wear all of them (except Demeter) and it'll also save you using a lot of coats of the small bottles that Hits comes in. This brand CAN use a top coat over it and I did. Some holographic polishes can't use top coats as it dulls the holo effect and makes it look horrible. Hits is a Brazilian brand that can be purchased at Llarowe and at Ninja Polish. Prices and shipping are really reasonable on both sites and they both ship internationally!
